Eelyn Lee is an award-winning artist and filmmaker who has exhibited across UK including Barbican, Tate Modern, National Portrait Gallery and Whitechapel Gallery as well as internationally in Paris, Berlin, Bogotá and Toronto.Her art practice combines collective research, devised theatre, screen writing and filmmaking to create frameworks for collaboration. Eelyn's Hong Kong/English heritage motivates her interest in race, identity and ’othering’. She has recently completed Born on Sunday Silent, a short film funded by BFI Network and is currently developing her debut narrative feature film. Both films explore hidden stories from Britain's colonial past through genre based story-telling.
That we would see something translated so profoundly from a theatrical space to a cinematic one in just a handful of days is really extraordinary... A wonderful paradox."
